When I set about making this site, I wanted to make the most useful car encyclopedia on the internet. I wanted it to be easy to use and interesting even for non-car nuts. I hope I've achieved that. I'm going to keep on improving this site regardless. I try to make sure all the specs are accurate, but there may be errors occasionally (report an error). Thanks for using this site, I hope it was helpful.
